Description
"Adds much to our knowledge of the coping skills, resourcefulness, and militance of working-class blacks in an urban setting in the North. Especially interesting is how working-class blacks -- confronted by middle-class black antipathy, white working-class racism, and hostile white employers -- relied on southern culture and folkways to adapt, survive, and at times even prosper." -- Glenn Feldman, Labor History "A valuable contribution to the historiography of the 'Great Migration' by providing insights into important though relatively neglected aspects of this popular movement. . . . . An important contribution to our understanding of localised, 'grass-roots' political activism in black communities. Moreover, most histories of the modern civil rights movement neglect to acknowledge the pre-Montgomery bus boycott origins of direct action, confrontational black politics; AlabamaNorth does much to amend this oversight." -- Craig Turnbull, Australasian Journal of American Studies "A new synthesis that will offer a model for scholars of African-American migration for years to come." -- H-Urban (H-Net Reviews) ADVANCE PRAISE "Kimberley Phillips's fine study . . . will be of real value to scholars of African-American, labor, women's, and working-class history."-Joe William Trotter, author of Black Milwaukee: The Making of an Industrial Proletariat, 1915- 45. "Phillips weaves the multiple voices of her subjects into the broader tapestry of the African American experience. . . . A model study of black urban and working- class history." - Eric Arnesen, author of Waterfront Workers of New Orleans
